More and more industry veterans seem to be exploring Blender's new "frontiers." Meet the work of one of them, if you are familiar of ILM/Lucasfilm and the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
How, then, can you too qualify for this award? Please have in mind that this award is reserved for those that are on par with or that excel top-notch works published by artists and studios. If such work does not appear during a given week, this award is not being given to anyone. So please submit your best work to www.blenderartist.org or to the Member's Gallery of this site, or Contact Us to show where your work is available on the internet. It doesn't have to be a Blender render, internal or Cycles. Any other render engine is fine as long as Blender was used as a part of your workflow
So, it is with great pleasure that www.BlenderNews.org introduces to you the winner of the Render of the Week Award for the week of April 5, 2021: Yanick Dusseault.
Title: "Layered World"
Yanick Dusseault, creative partner at Raynault VFX. I was previously Senior Art Director at ILM/Lucasfilm which I joined in early 2001 after working as a Senior Matte Painter on the Lord of the Rings trilogy in Wellington, New Zealand.

Featured in Cinefex & American Cinematographer, this image is part of a larger series of internally produced print ads showcasing Raynault VFX. It was also my first project entirely created in Blender to evaluate it’s capacity for large environment creation.
